Studio Friday.....FEAR!!!

I'm sure like all mothers I fear not being able to protect my children when they aren't with me. Therefore I have created this magical force field to surround them. I like to imagine it protects them from getting seriously or even slightly injured when they go to school or to the neighbors. I know it's silly but it makes me feel better and keeps me from being completely overprotective. You can only tell them to be careful so many times before they don't hear you any more.
Well...last week we experienced a major malfunction in the force field resulting in a broken femur. It happened at school while playing football with the big boys. Poor J-Bot...he got the full treatment...included was a ride in an ambulance, getting his clothes cut off, an IV, 2 days in the hospital and a partial body cast. He was sooo brave considering how much pain he was in.
Now he's doing pretty good...no pain and he has a wheelchair that reclines so he can be on the computer....phaheeeww. I can tell that he's starting to miss school.
Thanks to all our family and friends and all the prayers from the folks at St. Joseph's School. A special thanks goes out to Uncle Chris for the Nintendo DS ....GiGi loves it too!
I still fear them getting hurt but I don't think I'll be any more or less protective than I was before...I still believe in the force field!! I do know I'm gonna get pretty buff from carrying him around..heh.

Oh, the Mommy in me wants to give him a hug and then you. Hope he is back bouncing around as boys should soon! Take care of you too!

Wishing a speedy recovery!

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry to hear about your son's accident. Many good healing wishes going your way!

As a mom I can totally identify with your desire to want to have "the force" surround your little ones all the time... and when it fails, we know how limited our control really is. But this can show you that even when something bad happens, you (and your kids) will survive -- and hopefully even thrive as a result.
